Community Events & Announcements

Featured Community Event
The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign is recruiting MFA students. Our program is small and intimate, providing students significant one-on-one mentorship, full financial assistance, and valuable teaching experience. The three-year program allows our students to take risks; explore a wide variety of creative, theoretical, and professional experiences; deeply engage as teachers in both practice and dance scholarship; and prepare themselves to (re)enter the professional field with a strong foundation and a wealth of resources. Application deadline is December 1st.
